Dear one, express your gratefulness in song to the Eternal Creator in
the stillness of your heart, where I am the Silent Witness to your gratitude.
They are the secret longings of the human heart, and those feelings
of thankfulness rise as incense before the throne of God.
It warms the Fathers Heart that there are those on dark little
Urantia (the name of this planet), who give voice to their innermost
feelings of gratitude. In this manner, also, they allow their souls
to grow and to be nurtured in return, as everything always has its effect.
The higher you climb on the ascension ladder to perfection
in the spiritual spheres, the more your joy shall increase, although
that is practically unthinkable on a planet such as this, where so many

in the evolution and growth of the soul.
Mankind is still bent on immediate gratification of the senses, and
fulfillment of mere earthly desires.
It is the courageous and rugged living through the vicissitudes of life,
and through self-discipline and self-mastery, that the victories of
the soul are won. This comes about when the higher self wins out over
the lower animal self, and learns to live by the golden rule of doing

Self could triumph while yet in the flesh, all the while being obedient
to the doing of the Will of His Father in Heaven. His was a life of
And in living His life of service, countless souls were thereby assisted,
and went forth to live life more courageously with a grateful and joyful
heart, living and believing in the promise of Life Everlasting, where
true life unfolds to the Glory of God.
